Christian Jones, ILB/OLB/DE, Florida State
6032 232 4.64/4.54
ranked as the #1 ILB by some
ranked as the #6 OLB by many
among the best DE in the nation this year.
Aguably the best coverage LB in college

Yawin Smallwood* ILB/OLB Connecticut
6025 236 4.68
He is a traditional 34 thumper ILB. Coverage skills are solid enough

Carr is a back up corner at best. If we have another corner go down we could be in big trouble.

Center is my next upgrade. When Nicks left dlp was exposed as being serviceable but not much more than that. He does not allow Drew to step up in the pocket quite often. He doesn't handle the bull rush well and gets beat way too often.

I think that we will be good at tackle when Armstead works his way into the line up. Strief has been surprisingly good so I feel good about the tackles.

The guards are strong enough to stay with what we've got. Lelito looked better last game and can fill in nicely.

Safety needs to be addressed in the draft......if the right player is there after we've filled our needs. Jenkins has improved but I am not willing to sign him to a long term contract. His past performances can't be ignored.

I am slightly concerned about our WR's. Morgan and Toon are injured again. Meachem most likely won't be back. Kenny Stills can catch but doesn't go after the ball. We look a little thin now.
Toon is injured didnt see it on the report?

Forget position. Pick a player on Michigan State's defense. They rock.

Darqueze Dennard PLEASE. Best corner in the nation, if you ask me.

Would also like their DE Shilique Calhoun.

No, Toon isn't injured, but with all the butter on his fingers he couldn't open the door to get out of his house. He is inactive for now but I think we'll see more of him next season.

i am really wishing for multi picks in the third, people love the first round but i love rounds 2 thru 4 most for building depth

I do not see a lot of NEEDs other than Center, but that is a huge need for us and I wouldn't be comfortable drafting one unless it was in the 1st round... Anything after that wouldnt be a Rookie starter.

We need a little more depth at WR, and CB.

I think we hit good with J.Jenkins but I think we could use another big DT also, 2 young DT's for years to come would be fine with me. ILB would my first choice and a ball-hawking FS. I would go with CB but I feel White is going to make heads turn real soon.

At one point I was thinking corner but we are too deep (white, Greer, Robinson, sweeting, Lewis) I would prefer a OG or center but you can get a top caliber in 2nd or 3rd so that leaves mlb or best available player. We desperately need another Carl Nicks
